Sayings from My Mother by Attracta O'Malley

Life's Lessons - Old Irish Sayings

  • All you need in life is enough.

  • What you give with a good heart you get back a hundred fold.

  • Don’t give to get.

  • Your health is your wealth.

  • An ounce of intelligence is worth a ton of education.

  • It’s a long road that doesn’t have a turn in it.

  • Say it to the person’s face not behind their back – then be finished with it.

  • Always remember, you come into the world with nothing and you leave the same way.

  • If you have more than enough share the wealth.
